Project Description

A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a self-organising network consisted of mobile nodes that are connected through wireless media. A number of unique features, such as lack of infrastructural or central administrative supports, dynamic network topologies, open communication channels, and limited device capabilities and bandwidths, have made secure, reliable and efficient routing operations in MANETs a challenging task. Security threats and attacks on routing operations can severely disrupt network operations, degrade network performance, and adversely affect the QoS (quality of service) provisioning in MANETs.

This project is aimed at investigating the tradeoffs between security and QoS in MANETs. Interesting research issues include how to allow security requirements be addressed as an integral part of the QoS requirements and how to make ad hoc routing operations QoS/risk-aware.
